Showrunner David Benioff explains why Game Of Thrones Season 8 is taking a pretty long time

Game of Thrones Season 8 is on its way in the first half of 2019 and we still have a long way to go until it finally airs. On 17th of September, the series finally won the much-awaited Emmy for “Outstanding Drama Series” along with Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) who won an Emmy for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.”

A complete list of 2018 Emmy award winners!

Well, Digital Spy had a moment of talk with David Benioff – who is one of the showrunners of Game of Thrones. Upon being asked why the next season of Game of Thrones is ahead of schedule and taking too long to be aired, Benioff explained:

“The final season is taking a long time because it’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done…Even though it’s six episodes, it was nearly a full year in Belfast either prepping it or shooting it…It’s quite extraordinary what the crew and the actors created, and I think when people see it they’ll understand why it took so long.”

Of course, we do understand that if Game of Thrones is too long, we will definitely get something epic out of it. We have also been promised a bittersweet ending and have a long time to speculate what could possibly happen in the next season. With a huge budget being spent on each episode this year, we all definitely know that it will be splendid.

Benioff ended by saying,

“No-one’s going on vacation or slacking off, it’s just that last season is far beyond what we’ve ever attempted before, and it is taking a really f**king long time – and I hope it will be worth it.”

We will know it once the new season airs. Until then, all we can do is re-watching the last seven seasons over and over again. How epic would be Game of Thrones Season 8? What do you think? Tell us in the comments.

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa opens up about life with family

Real-life is often different from reel life. The celebrities we idolize often face regular problems like normal people. We might want a life like theirs, but ignore the struggles they had to face. For example, Game of Thrones macho man Jason Momoa. Though he appears fearsome as Khal Drogo and majestic as Aquaman on-screen, he’s completely different in real life. The 41-year-old actor recently opened up about his life off-screen in an interview with Men’s Health magazine.

The Game of Thrones star revealed, “I may look big and tough, but I’m not. I’m nothing like Khal Drogo. I’m not even the king of my own house! I’m absolutely terrified of my wife.”

Momoa loves his family. He said, “We’ve all gotten so much closer. My wife is very sophisticated and smart and our kids and I are kind of like animals that need to be trained a little better. I’m constantly a work in progress, and I’ve just been trying to get better as a father and a husband.” 

Jason has been through a lot, without letting anyone know about his troubles. He recently revealed in an interview how his family was facing financial troubles after Game of Thrones. It is tough to imagine someone as popular as he went broke. Things got better for him after the Justice League.

Game of Thrones' Sean Bean shines once again as a dad in animation Wolfwalkers

Animated movies are a doorway to relive our childhood. Adults and children enjoy them equally. Some of them have such an engaging story they turn out to be a huge success. Sean Bean starrer Wolfwalkers checks off all the markers of a great animated movie. (Another cool animation Hitpig is on the way!). The movie was released on 13th November in The US and has been received really well by critics worldwide.

Game of Thrones' Sean Bean shines once again as a dad in animation Wolfwalkers

Directed by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, Wolfwalkers is rooted in Irish folklore and art. It follows the tale of a young girl, Robyn (Honor Kneafsey), and her father, Bill (Sean Bean). They have been called from their homeland (England) to take out a pack of wolves in the town of Kilkenny, Ireland, in the 17th century. Robyn longs for the freedom she once had in England and wants to follow in her father’s footsteps as a hunter.

On the other side of the forest are wolfwalkers. They are a small breed of unique humans with the ability to turn into wolves when they sleep. They have control over wild wolves living in the surrounding forests. The wolfwalkers are forced to lash out as the townsfolk destroy their home, hunting them. Robyn must act as a mediator for her Irish town and the wolfwalkers of the forest.

The film features Celtic art and beautifully designed hand-drawn animation. From being the Dad Wolf in Game of Thrones to hunting wolves in Wolfwalkers, Sean Bean has come a long way. Give it a watch and tell us how you felt about it in the comments below!
